Great way to explore a neighborhood!!!

This is a great way to explore a city neighborhood that you might not otherwise visit with all the other tempting options in NYC. We enjoyed the history details provided by our Tour Guide (Bob) and his obvious enthusiasm for sharing his city's history with visitors!! We munched our way through a great variety of food tastings while enjoying the atmosphere of the Chelsea Market and visiting the amazing highline park. A 'Must Do' for anyone who would enjoy eating their way through a city neighborhoodd while learning about local history and culture!!!

Our tour guide (Barri) was very knowledgeable and personable during the tour. It was quite interesting - we learned a lot about the area and shops within the neighborhood and market. The walking part of the tour was easy enough for everyone in our group (various ages). The food was absolutely amazing and there was plenty available. We had a great variety - desserts, soups, drinks, pasta, breads, appetizers, etc. etc. We were very pleased with the affordability of this tour - well worth the price! Chelsea Market was one of our favorite places in Manhattan. We will be back to try other tours and probably take in the Chelsea Market tour again. Very enjoyable! Thanks Barri, Foods of New York Tours and Zerve!

Bob, our tour guide, made the tour what it was. He is extremely knowledgeable, not just about the food establishments we visited, but, more generally, about the history of the area we visited and of Manhattan.

First, our tour guide was excellent --she was very informative, humorous but could've made it more interactive amongst group members. We enjoyed the historical facts and the eateries selected. The tastings were excellent choices and good portions. Not too much idle time spent between stops which made tour time perfect. Would've enjoyed meeting some of the chefs,

My three friends and I took the Chelsea/Meatpacking tour and it exceeded our expectations. It was a lovely combination of history and good food. Our guide Barri was wonderful - full of interesting anecdotes, information and a detailed appreciation for the food and places that were visited. She took very good care of us and our special needs and dietary restrictions, which were varied. We thought the tour was a great value and one of the highlights of our trip to New York.

The guide Barri was well qualified to lead a group.. kept us moving was well organized and entertaining. I enjoyed the historical perspective of the tour... and of course the tastings!!! Well run.. would definately recommend even if you are on your own... the set up lends itself to meeting others if you wish.

We enjoyed the tour very much. It was interesting seeing the small producers and their products. The atmosphere in the market is great. We were pleasantly surprised to find the tour also covered a small part of the hi line walk. We were full and content by the end of the tour.
